    Police arrested a 28-year-old Gowrie man after searching his house and seizing a number of items including a taser-like devise.

Police Minister simple Simon was spruiking about all the extra police and police patrols but do any of us really believe there are more cops on the beat.

I believe they are there, out there manning speed traps and RBT’s. I’m not saying that we as a society don’t need traffic police, but we do get a overly large proportion of them, compared to average police officer out there to protect life and limb.

I’ve needed the police once and to be honest next time I need them, I’ll probably save myself the time and effort and get a few of my mates around to dish out our own justice rather than waiting for them to do a no show or for the legal system to go soft on the criminals. (yes I do realise the irony in that statement, but remember, the soft on criminals part).

BTW I’m sorry to any law enforcement officer (inc a couple of my mates) who actually try to do the right thing, it does however seem to me that the right thing and the profitable thing gets mixed up by gov’ts of all sides.

Since the new roster came in earlier in the year, there are generally a lot more police on the beat during most times of the day and night, particularly ‘peak’ periods. To suggest ALL the extra police are manning RBTs and speed traps is just silly. The misconception that any cop gives a rats about raising revenue for the Govt is nonsense. Most I know hate doing ‘speed traps’ etc.

As far as police doing a ‘no show’ to what sounds like an assault…I think a bit more info is needed. I’ve never heard of an assault getting fobbed off, ever.

You’ve got a better chance of losing life and limb on the roads than other situations. The police are throwing resources where its needed. I agree we need more police but across all areas.

I’m not disagreeing with this, but it’s little comfort when little thugs who everyone in the area knows who they are and what they do, gives someone a shiner, and yet the coppers are unwilling to do anything about it, even after you give names and addresses of the offenders.

Tylersmayhem suffers from what is a serious problem in our society, one that we need to address without simple name-calling and blunt weapons. A fairly high percentage of our population grow up with genital-head-syndrome….

How long have you been storing that little gem to use on here? How long did it take to write? Very creative, and even got a chuckle out of me. You’re a genius!
